Ryan Fitzpatrick talks about the addition of Matt Forte

Florham Park, NJ - Through two games it's become abundantly clear that Matt Forte still has "it." What that "it" is  completely subjective and up to each individual to define but everyone can feel free to debate the specifics but it's pretty much impossible to deny that "it" translates into a better offense for the Jets.

At 30-years-old Forte looks to be proving to be one of the exceptions to the rule of 30 for running backs that leads up to believe all running backs skills erode drastically the day they turn 30. Forte himself never worried about that, because of his diet and the way he worksout Forte is confident he can keep up his current paceBrandon Marshall agreed with, as he calls him, 'The Workhorse,' as does Ryan Fitzpatrick.

"He's done it, I guess. He's done it in his career a bunch. He's always the most energetic guy in here after a game, whether it's a loss from Week One or the win from Week Two. He's running around," Fitzpatrick said. "I feel bad because I feel a little sore and he's running around like crazy, looking like he's 20. He's, again a guy that's going to be a big part of our offense and a guy we want to be able to get the ball as much as we can."
